I stayed in Casa Xanadu for a week with my husband and 7-year old son and my sister-in-law and her family. We travel differently now than we did pre-kids, and this was a perfect place for our two families. The rooms were beautiful and spacious, and the common areas - just outside the rooms and the pool area - were so comfortable for us. The pool was spectacular, and the kids were in it for hours. It was great in the evenings after the kids went to sleep that we able to sit outside on the cozy sofa or rocking chairs to read and chat with other guests. The location was perfect - just a few quick blocks to great restaurants (and just a few doors down from a new bakery - yum!).
But Casa Xanadu is more than just a beautiful place to stay. What really differentiates it from other places is the staff. Marlene was incredibly helpful, friend and knowledgeable, and she arranged all of our tours and transportation. Miriam is a wonderful cook and in addition to making us delicious breakfasts each day, we had her make us two delicious dinners that we enjoyed around the pool. Maria and Veronica help in the kitchen and also keep the place spotless. They are the friendliest group I've encountered, and they seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs and each other - and making the guests feel comfortable. It's rare that we kiss staff goodbye at the end of a trip, but in this case it was the most natural thing do to! I can't recommend Casa Xanadu highly enough, and we all hope to return!
